Former Ft. Madison basketball coach reported missing

A former Fort Madison High School basketball coach has been missing since last week, according to Burlington Police.

Major Darren Grimshaw said Jeffrey Bloomer, 55, was reported missing on Friday.

Grimshaw said the vehicle of Bloomer was found Saturday morning on the Great River Bridge over the Mississippi River.

“A missing persons report has been filed,” said Grimshaw. “Unfortunately we have no new information in this case since his car was located on Saturday.”

A Fort Madison School District employee confirmed that Bloomer was a teacher and boys basketball coach at the high school from August of 1998 through June of 2006.
